ok, I'm writing from my touchpad bc I'm having an issue. I'm reinstalling windows and it goes thru the whole process, reboots and comes back up with "updating registry", then instead of going to a login screen or even asking for a key, it just goes to a black screen with my movable cursor. I reformated all my partitions. After this black screen happened 3 times I even deleted my system reserve partition 0. So I'm trying not to get frustrated at this point seeing as windows is being a POS. Thanks for any help guys.
